On Thursday 7th March 2019, nine Year 7 students visited the Kailesh Kadampa Buddhist Centre on the Wirral where they learnt about key aspects of Buddhism as part of the module they are currently studying.

They listened to a message given by the Resident Teacher, Sue Holmes about what it means to follow the teachings of Buddhism and participated in a breathing meditative exercise. Time was given near the end of the teaching session for questions to be asked by the pupils involved.

Students commented that they enjoyed the afternoon and found it really helpful in their study of Buddhist teachings in Year 7.

Mr Shelton, Head of Religious Studies said “In our global community it is important that our pupils get to visit local places of worship and experience how faith makes a difference in believers lives.  This was a great educational visit which support the classroom learning on Buddhism and Prince Siddhartha Gotoma.”
